The Weekly Quantum Digest: Quantum Materials Search Gets Some Large-Scale Help

In this week’s digest, we look at scientists who are bringing the ginormous to the nano-scale to advance the search for better quantum materials and we’ll join a team of researchers as they fire up a quantum heat engine. Plus, AWS is officially allowing access to its quantum computing service.. and lots more!

Spotlight Story: 

“Researchers at Columbia University and University of California, San Diego, have introduced a novel “multi-messenger” approach to quantum physics that signifies a technological leap in how scientists can explore quantum materials.” —
